Current Exhibition

Celebrating 5 Years of Community Supported Art
April 28-July28

gallery with artworkThe College of Arts + Architecture (CoA+A) joins the Arts & Science Council (ASC) to present “Celebrating 5 Years of Community Supported Art,” an exhibition of work by local visual artists, at the Projective Eye Gallery at UNC Charlotte Center City. The show runs from April 28 through July 28, 2018. 

The exhibition highlights artists who have participated in ASC’s Community Supported Art (CSA) program, which supports local artists in the creation and promotion of new work and establishes relationships between the artists and local collectors and patrons. ASC launched the CSA program in 2013.

This show brings original artwork created in every CSA season together for the first time. Additionally, more than 30 past CSA artists have contributed newer works to be featured in the exhibition. These larger works represent the evolution of the artists’ careers since they participated in CSA.

About the CoA+A Gallery System

The mission of the College of Arts + Architecture gallery system is to create lively forums in which the curious encounter the work of global, regional, and local artists through diverse media and dynamic exchanges that are nourished by the intellectual and creative life of the university. Our programming will echo crossovers of the visual arts, architecture, music, theatre, and dance inherent to the College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte. We seek to provide a haven for experimentation, to invigorate the environments we occupy, and to amplify the means to engage art and design in our community.
